    Hi Rob


    This is the first one I've ever seen in six years of collecting so I can't really comment on it. I hope the others will be able to help you out...

    Hello to everyone, as this is my first post on this forum :-)
    I have serious doubts about this badge: first, is this kind of badge known at all? What is Heeres-Abnahme? The transaltions for Abnahme don't give me any sense:

    abnahme (translation)
    Deutsches Wrterbuch von Jacob und Wilhelm Grimm

    As for the badge, the obverse looks like kripo/gestapo etc ID discs, but the reverse looks like tinnie ?? The obverse is also unsimetrical (see the space between wing tips and border), what should not happen on original pieces. I would surely pass on this one, but has anybody more information?

    Regards, Valter

    Hi Valter


    Welcome to the forum, thank you for a most contributing first post. It's definitely something to think about. Mayhap a fantasy badge, could the other members tell if they ever seen one of these before?

    Hi Guy's,

    The badge is an original example that would have been worn by a member of the Heeres-Abnahme (Acceptance section of army ordnance office.) A subsidiary of the Heereswaffenampt (German army weapons agency.)

    This badge was likely worn by a technical inspector.There were 25,000 of these in 1940, all with the minimum rank of Oberleutnant, later in the war upgraded to Hauptmann. They were responsible for the testing and acceptance of ALL weapons, equipment and ammunition prior to delivery to the Wehrmacht. Thats what all those stamps on German equipment are about!!

    By mid-1944, approximately 8,000 of these officers were transfered to front line units to fight as the reich began it's final collapse and the weapons industry was increasingly curtailed by allied bombing.

    A most unusual badge, and a pleasure to see, thank's for sharing!!

    Regards, Ned.

    This piece looks as if it has been unearthed to me, as in ground dug. Any ideas as to that possibility from your source?
